The Tropical Bird is a 2-sided hand embroidery technique. The design is worked in surface embroidery stitches on a silk Dupioni fabric using Au Ver A Soie, Soie D’alger silk thread.

The silk fabric comes with the design drawn on so you do not have to be concerned about transferring the design yourself and the silk threads come on a numbered thread template so you know exactly which colour to use on the embroidery.

In the kit I provide a detailed instruction booklet with 19 pages of step-by-step diagrams and instructions on how to work each stitch which are reversible so that the back looks the same as the front.

Some experience with satin stitch is an asset for working the Tropical bird so that you can control the angle of the satin stitch on the feathers and leaves. If you are not familiar with satin stitch then I recommend working the tropical flower first which is an easier design and will give you experience in satin stitch for the bird.

The 2-sided embroidery kits are great designs to improve your stitching skills and to impress your friends.

I am offering free on-going critique with this kit…..you can email me at any time if you have questions or would like me to critique your embroidery.

The Shadow Work Tree Frog is an intermediate surface embroidery technique.

The shadow work embroidery is made up of bands of herringbone stitch at the back of the fabric that show through at the front as a shadow of colour.

I have designed my shadow work embroideries as pieces of art. The tree frog looks lovely mounted between two window mat boards and hung from the corners like a mobile so that both sides of the embroidery can be seen.

The Jacobean Tree with Bird is an advanced crewel surface embroidery technique. If you are new to the technique you may want to try a smaller design first as this design is large and will take some time to stitch.

The design uses traditional Jacobean motifs and is stitched in 14 traditional Jacobean colours in Appleton crewel wool on traditional linen twill fabric. The design comes drawn on the fabric so you do not have to be concerned about transferring the design yourself.

There are 22 surface embroidery stitches worked on in a single strand of the crewel wool for each stitch on the design.
